Description The semantic network editor DEBVisDic has been used by different development teams to create more than 20 national wordnets. The editor was recently redeveloped as a multi-platform web-based application for general semantic networks editing. One of the main advantages, when compared to the previous implementation, lies in the fact that no client-side installation is needed now. Following the successful first phase in building the Open Dutch Wordnet, DEBVisDic was extended with features that allow users to easily create, edit, and share a new (usually national) wordnet without the need of any complicated configuration or advanced technical skills. The DEBVisDic editor provides advanced features for wordnet browsing, editing, and visualization. Apart from the userfriendly web-based application, DEBVisDic also provides an API interface to integrate the semantic network data into external applications.
